Peach Oolong Tea by Come Buy

Teaspresso’ is a recent range of teas at Come Buy that fea­tures more nuanced teas than the reg­u­lar black or green tea options. One such ‘teas­presso’ is this Peach Oolong by Come Buy. I’m a fan of oolong, and this tea is a trans­lu­cent golden brown. Served chilled, there are prom­in­ent notes of a slightly nutty oolong in the head before syr­upy peach fla­vours that recall the overly ripe fruit emerge in the body before an astrin­gent fin­ish lingers long on the palate.

Overall, while notes of peach and oolong come through as prom­ised, the fla­vour is rather one dimen­sion­al — there’s noth­ing par­tic­u­larly spe­cial or enjoy­able about this tea.

Peach Oolong appeared on Come Buy menus in Sydney, Australia dur­ing July 2017.
